A life by chocolate entails finding sweetness in the light and dark. Moreso, it's about addiction to cocoa. An insatiable sweet tooth doesn't hurt. Well, not until the yucky tartar buildup and stuff. To the point, I strive to entertain with topics such as the utter hilarity and cuteness of children; the challenges of dating, my related rationale for celibacy; and chocolate as a precious remedy for it all. Thanks for sampling Life by Chocolate. I hope you keep coming back for more.

A Horse-Turkey Combo: Sundays in My City

UnknownMami did it again. She does it every week: hosts a wonderfully scenic worldwide party.

So welcome back to Chico, CA, where our town mascot is dressed as either...
                                                                a Horse-Turkey or...

                                                                    a Turkey-Horse.

Whichever the case, you gotta love it!

Thanks for visiting, and happy Sunday.

Whether or not you celebrate Thanksgiving, may it be a safe and thankful new week.

This might be the cutest photo of the horse yet! LOL!

Anthony J. Langford said...

Now why would a horse want to disguise itself as a turkey? Let's hope it's planning to help them escape rather than seduce them.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

That is... disturbing!
And you need to check out Chuck's post today, Robyn. I nominated you to host the Thanksgiving Dinner this year.

Tara R. said...

Whoever comes up with the costumes for Horse is very creative. The turkey suit is hilarious.

retired not tired said...

Loved the costume - Happy Thanksgiving!

Pat Hatt said...

Hmm if it can gobble, that would be impressive, scary but impressive haha

Keetha Broyles said...


Oh my goodness, Robyn - - - this is my FAVORITE horse-guise yet!

YeamieWaffles said...

Haha this is awesome Robyn. I'm not sure if it's a horse dressed as a turkey or a really, really cunning turkey, just kidding but I do love this, so cool that your city are doing this for Thanksgiving.

IT (aka Ivan Toblog) said...

Glad they got it in from the rain

Nuthin' worse than wet horkey ...or turse

MsA, it's so silly. I really like it too.

Anthony, LOL. No thanks.

GB, yes, let's hope. They'll follow it to the Horse and More Store, thinking it's their mommy.

Alex, I can't disagree that it's disturbing. And I'm good with hosting, so long as all are good with a chocolate-basted turkey. Talk about disturbing.

Tara, they really put alot of effort into it. I give them much credit for keeping things lively.

Retired, happy Thanksgiving to you.

Pat, I didn't hear it gobble. But that would be impressive and creepy.

Keetha, it's one of my favorites too.

YW, thanks. It could possibly be the most clever turkey in the world.

IT, yeah, that wouldn't be good and would mess up his mane and feathers.

Be safe and grateful, all.

Love the turkey-horse. You can run this turkey/horse in a race and eat it when the race is over. A win win for everyone...well almost everyone.

David Macaulay said...

lol - that is plain weird Robyn

Laurie Matherne said...

When I saw the thumbnail on Unknown Mami's blog, I was hoping it would be you from Chico. Yes! I love the weird turkey-horse.

Lexa Cain said...

Haha! I especially love the big fan tail. The people in Chico must have a great sense of humor! :-)

Ruth said...

They should have given him a hat with a buckle on it.

cestlavie22 said...

That is craziness! Very silly mascot :)

Chuck said...

Robyn, that mascot sure gets around. But whoever is dressing him...say, did they legalize pot in your area too?? Just asking...

Yvonne said...

Why in the world would they dress a horse as a turkey? Silly. A very happy Thanksgiving to you, sweets!

Rhonda @Laugh Quotes said...

What ever it is, it is pretty silly and quite fun. Happy horse-turkey week :)

Dawn @Lighten Up! said...

HHaaaa! That's awesome. I absolutely love it! Thanks for the smile, mah friend!

Joanna Jenkins said...

Hello fellow chocolate lover! Stopping over from Sundays In My City.
Love the horse! What a hoot.
Happy Thanksgiving, jj

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

Stephen, yeah, the losers are the ones who take a bite.

David, LOL. But it's the thought that counts.

Laurie, it IS a lovable thing. Isn't it?

Lexa, at least a few do. =)

Ruth, true, but that might mess up his 'do.

Chuck, haha. Okay, good question. Nah, it's not legal here. But illegal things are always more tempting, right?

Yvonne, and back to you, darlin'.

Rhonda, happy Turkey-Horse week to you. Thanks.

Dawn, always glad to make you smile. Cheers, and happy T-giving.

Hello, Joanna. Sorry I ate all the chocolate, but I'm glad you stopped by. Be well.

Melissa Bradley said...

A gobbler on a horse LOL I love it! Of course that thing makes me think of my own gobbler. Facial exercises and a lift. ;)

Stephen Tremp said...

I hope its not turkey season for the horse's sake!

Stephen Tremp said...

Oh, and thanks for joining the Alexfest!

Baby Sister said...

The horse pictures are my favorite, and I think this one takes the cake. That is hilarious!!

Unknown Mami said...

I do love it. I love that friggin' horse.

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

PTM, I didn't think of that. But you might be right. Good guess!

Melissa, you silly, beautiful lady. PS I know what you mean. Why must fat cells accumulate below the chin? Damn them.

Stephen, you're welcome. Thank you.

BabySis, it is a really good one this month.

Unknown, me too, and I'm so glad my readers do. I'd be lost on Sundays without my photo shoot sessions with the horse.
